Gift of Giving Financial Assistance Application


Tamika & Friends, Inc. is a national nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization designed to raise awareness about cervical cancer and its link to the human papillomavirus (HPV). Through a network of survivors and friends, we provide a forum to discuss the impact and recovery of cervical cancer and also provide informational resources, networking opportunities, and special events to further educate women across the nation.

When diagnosed with cervical cancer and going through many obstacles, Tamika came out victorious with her life. Yet she still yearned for one thing…the ability to have children. She was devastated to discover her insurance did not cover fertility preservation for an unmarried woman. Feeling the heartache of her friend, Tracey S. Hughes Head unselfishly gave Tamika a check to help with all of her expenses. When Tamika got back on her feet and wanted to pay Tracey back, Tracey refused to accept the money, thus the inception of this award. It is the desire of Tamika & Friends, Inc. (T&F) to pay it forward whenever we can.
